Honda Cars Nepal has launched the HR-V subcompact SUV in the Nepalese market at an introductory discount of Rs 5 Lakhs. The Honda HR-V sits above the BR-V and below the CR-V in Honda’s global SUV lineup.
The exterior design includes a more substantial interpretation of Honda’s ‘Solid Wing Face’ graphic, with a new, high-gloss dark chrome panel that replaces the black-and-chrome combination above the grille. The front bumper features deeper air intake sections that house circular fog lights, and the headlights now have projector lenses with redesigned LED daytime running lights as standard.
At the rear, a dark chrome garnish across the tailgate mirrors the new trim at the front, and the rear lights sit within darker lens casings. It rides on 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels. The HR-V measures 4,295 mm long, 1,770 mm wide, 1,605 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,610 mm. Similarly, ground clearance stands at 180 mm.
On the inside, the HR-V gets the carry-over of Honda’s innovative Magic Seat system. Redesigned seats for the driver and front passenger incorporate changes to the seat cushion and backrest, providing enhanced overall support – especially for the shoulder area. The top grade models feature a combination of fabric and leather with double stitching for a more appealing finish.
The HR-V is available in a 1.5-litre i-VTEC naturally aspirated petrol engine, which delivers a peak power of 128 bhp and maximum torque of 155 Nm at 4,600 rpm. The engine comes mated to a CVT transmission. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 11.2 seconds.
This subcompact SUV offers features like Paddle Shifters, Smart Keyless Entry, Cruise Control, 4 Airbags. Push Start System, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and many more.
